Let those ar c'eeiring time
Rejoice in early flowers ;
Let those who love the summer
Enjoy her curtained bowers,
Her roses and her wcfodbiaes,
Her songsters full of glee ;
But the golden tints of autumn
Have a matchless charm for me.
When gay old Indian summer
Toys with the western sky,
And'dresses ap the sunset
With robes of gorgeous dye;
When the wailing winds are chanting
Their dirges to the flowers,
And serenade a welcome
To the lengthened evening hours;
When joyous nutting parties
Leave the dusty city's throng,
And join the happy chorus
Of the autumn wood-bird's song,
And the grand old forests echo
With their merry laugh and glee,
With voices of the swelling streams,
The sobbing of the sea;
When our gramiries and cellars
Are drafting for recruits,
And the call is promptly answered
With stores of grain and fruits;
When the hectic flush is painted
Qn the cheek of tree and vine,
And tells that dear Dame Nature
Is in a swift " decline "
The missions of the spring time
And summer are complete,
And while the year is dying
He weaves hie winding sheet ;
And gently, very gently,
le folded-on his breast
A pall of pearly whiteness,
Which robes him for his rest.

The inconeisteracy of Drunkards and
By the , above caption* it is not meant
to be implied.tbat the class mentioned
are the only persons who are inconsist
ent, for we believe that there is a cer
tain degree of inconsistency in all wrong
doers arising from the fact, perhaps,"that
whilst their actions tend in one direc
tion, their conscienees, until wholly sear
ed, point in.the opposite one.
Bat this is sometimes very strikingly
illustrated in the ease of the drunkard
and the drunkard-maker.
We once met a man who when sober
was a most excellent physician. On the
. referred to, he had evidently
wandered to the outskirts of the village
to escape being " called " to the sick
room. He could not walk erect without
holding to the arm of a friend of ours ;
as we returned to the village, and yet to
a remark made to that friend upon the
effect of abstinence in general upon .
longevity. The physician replied, with
stammering lips : " Yes, abstinence is a
good thing. I always recommend total
abstinence to my patients." We came
to know him better afterwards and be
lieve he spoke the truth, for we have
known few better and more considerate
physicians when.not intoxicated.
A city missionary in London, on one
occasion found, in a public house, writ
ten in a bold baud, framed, and placed
where all could read them, the following
"0 that men would put an enemy in
their mouths to steal away their brains.
Drunkenness expels reason, drowns the
memory, diminishes strength, effaces
beauty, inflames the blood, causes exter
nal, internal sad incurs* wounds. :It
is a witch to the senses, a devil to the
soul, a thief to the . purse, the beggar's
companion. A wife's woe, and a child's
sorrow ; makes a strong man mad, and a
wise man a fool. He is worse than a
beast, and is a' self-murderer, who drinks
to others' good health and robe himself
of his own."
How strangely it must have looked to
see such a philippic against drunkenness
as that hanging up in sight of the land
lord and hie customers. And yet I have
no doubt that the miserable rumeeller,
sure of his victims, was glad enough to
let it hang there as a salve to his con
science, and-if any poor fellow got "too
drunk" on his liquor he could point
complacently to that as a proof that "he
was making himself worse than a beast."
We once heard a man who was sel
dom sober, and who almost burnt out his
eyes drinking liquor, close a eulogy upon
a great statesman with the .words.:--
' But they say he drinks very hard, yes
( with a wise , shake of the , head) they
say he's a hard drinker."
All, of course, are not thus inconsist
ent. Many "glory in their shame," and
make a boast of their iniquity. Many
scoff at all that is good, and decent, and
sober, and make the man who attempts
to ieform them the theme of their rude
and vulgar songs. But we• cannot but
think, that underneath all their low,
swaggering, there lies, only partially
asleep, an outraged conscience that w ill
one day thanderin their ears, those aw
ful vords: "You have been a destroyer
and a self murderer."

The * Printer and hie TYPe.
The.following heantiful extract is from
the pea of Benjamin F. Taylor, the_ prin.
Perhaps there_ is no depar#nu4, of
enterprise whose details are less under •
,intolligont, people, than.the .
"art preservative," the achievement of
Every day their life long they are ac
customed- to read the newspaper, and
find fault with its statements, its arrange
ments, its looks ; to plume themselves
upon' the discovery of soma roguish and
acrobatic type that gets into ft frolic
and stands upon.its head ; or 'of 'some
waste letter or two in• it—but of the
process by which the newspaper is made,
of the miriade of motions and the thous
ands of pieces necessary to its composi
tion, they know little and think less.
They imagine they-discourse of a won
der, indeed, when they speak of .the fair
white carpet, woven for thought to walk
on, of the rags that fluttered on the
back of the beggar yesterday.
But there is something more wonder
ful still. When we look at the hundred
and fifty-two little boxes, somewhat
shaded with the touch of inky , fingers,
that compose the printer's "case," noise
lessly, except the clicking of the types,
as one by one they take their places in
the, growing line--we think we have
foubd the marvel of the art.
We think how many fancies in frag
ments there are in the boxes ; how many
atoms of poetry and eloquence the prin
ter can make here an] there, if he bad
only a little chart to work by; how
many facts in a- small " handful ;" how
much truth in chaos.
Now he picks up' the scattered ele
ments until he holds in his hand a stanza
of "Gray's. Elegy," or a monody upon
Grimes' "All Buttoned up hefore."
Now he sets "puppy missing," and now
"Paradise, Lost ;" he arrays, . a hride in
"small caps," and.a sonnet in " nonpa
reil ;" and he announces the laughing
" live " in one sentence--transposes the
words and deplores the days that tire
few and "evil" in the next.
A poor jest ticks its way slowly into
the printer's hand, like a clock just run
ning down, and a strain of eloquence
marches into the line letter by letter.
We fancy we can tell the difference by
hearing by the ear, but perhaps not.
The types that told of a wedding yes
terday annoupce a burial, to-morrow—
perhaps the same letters.
They are the elements to make a world
of. Those types are a world with some
thing in it as beautiful as spring, as rich
as summer, and as grand as autumn flow
ers that frost cannot wilt. Fruit that
shall ripen for all time.
The newspaper has become the log.;
book of the world. It tells at what rate
the world is running. We cannot find
our "reckoning" without it.
True, the green grocer may bundle up
a pound of candles in our last expressed
thoughts, but it is only coming to base
uses, something that is (one times in
We console ourselves by thinking that

A Copperhead Orator 7
A rather rich joke occurred, to one of '
the promineet Copperheade in the bo
rough of Phoenixville, during the late
'campaign and which we donut feel war
ranted in permitting to pass unnoticed.
On the sth of Octobee,ihe Copperheads ,
held a meeting at the above named place,
and one of the speakers, whose name we
withhold for the present, remained over
night. He was entertained by, Esquire
---, and of course, was assigned •lodg
frig in the best,toom. It appears ✓ that
thelostess, had deposited in
one of the drawers of a bureau which
stood in the room, a keepsake in the
shape of $l5• in gold.
The next morning, after the host •and
his guest had started for the cars, Mrs.
( who is a good, staunch Union
woman,), feeling an uneasiness about
her treasure, made an examination, and
lo ! the gold was not there. She imme
diately started in pursuit of her husband
and his friend, and overtaking, them be.
fore they reached -the depot, at once
boldly charged the Copperhead orator
with the theft of the property. He
stoutly denied the charge, and her hus
band being very much shocked at the
sudden and unexpected turn things were
taking, apologized to his guest, and in
sisted that such a thing was entirely
impossible. But - the good Union wom
an was not -to be thus easiltput off.
With -a. persistence and energy eharac
teristic of her sex, she insisted that it
was true, and at last brought conviction
to the mind of her husband, who seized
the-culprit by the collar, when he at
once owned up, and disgorged the coin
in full. The gentleman who had the
honor of entertaining this distinguished
Copperhead orator, plead very hard with
our informant ( a Union man who hap
pened to be present, and heard and wit
nessed what transpired-), that he• would
not divulge it until after the election 1
Notwithstanding the election is over,
our Copperhead friends have taken no
steps to punish the culprit. ()an it be
possible that this is the character of
Copperhead orators generally, and to
administer justice to all of them, would
be entirely too stupenduous an under
taking? We trust our District Attorn
ey will not be thus dismayed, but will
at once make , a, beginning with the in

THE FLINT AND THE STEEL-A FABLE
—The flint and steel which had so long
acted together in perfect friendship,
kindling many a tinder box by willing
co-operation, quarreled one day. The
steel was furious because the filet bruis
ed his sides. The flint said, "You have
chipped, my side, too, and made me look
old and liattered. I won't stand it."
"Very well," said the spunky steel,
"let us part. Good-bye."
"0 good-bye," replied the Hint, " I
guess you won't amount to much when
"And you won't be worth a spark with
out me," retorted the steel.
And so the flint and steel parted.
While acting together they had been
useful, but separated they were value
less, and both found their way into sep
arate rubbish boxes.
Let children who quarrel and despise
each other learn a lesson from this fable.
God did not make them to quarrel, but
to act and play and live together, just
as he made the steel and flint to act to
gether in the production of sparks. It
is by loving and helping each other that
children help one another to grow wiser
and happier. When they quarrel and
live apart they hurt themselves, and rob
each other. Better live in friendship,
and then, as the flint and steel by har
mony :hake sparks, so they will make
their homes bright and beautiful with
the holy lights of love and kindness.

BOIT USING Tonecco.—A strong sen
sible writer says a good, sharp thing,
and a true one for boys who use tobacco.
It has utterly ruined thousands of boys.
It tends to softening and weakening of
the bones, and it greatly injures the
brain, the spinal marrow, and the whole
nervous fluid. A boy who smokes early
and frequently, or in any way uses large
quantities of tobacco, is never known to
make a man of much energy, and genera
ally lacks muscular and physical as well
as mental power. We would particular
ly warn boys who want to be anything
in the world, to shun tobacco as a most
baneful poison, It injures the teeth.
It produces an unhealthy state of the
throat and lungs, hurts the stomach, and
blasts the brain and nerves.
